The End for Which God Made the World

by Jonathan Edwards

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A cogent argument that God made the world primarily for His glory. This primary end does not exclude another goal: our happiness. Since we were made to worship Him, our obedience to His design brings us delight and Him glory.

As an old American choral piece puts it:
“Thine be the glory, man’s the boundless bliss!”

The writing style and argumentation is heavily philosophical – beware!
